Class 5A #1 Carl Albert and #2 Bishop McGuinness squared off Friday night at Jim Harris Field with the Carl Albert Titans coming out on top 21-6. The Titans move to 6-0 and are favorited to win the 5A-2 district championship.

With a 14-6 lead late in the fourth quarter, Carl Albert relied on their defense to come up.  Zane Alexander would be the catalyst to a stout Titans defense, coming up with big plays, including a hard hit preventing a potential Bishop McGuinness touchdown.
